Hong Kong’s Plaza Premium Group has unveiled its first transit hotel, located within Singapore’s Changi Airport.
The company, which operates independent airport lounges across the world, officially entered the hotel space this week with the launch of the new Aerotel Singapore, which is located near the boarding gates in Terminal 1.
It becomes the first such facility at Changi and the world’s first Aerotel-branded property, following the unveiling of the new concept at ITB Asia in October 2015.
The new property offers 70 rooms and is being billed as the “world’s only [air-side] transit hotel equipped with an outdoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and pool-side bar”.
Aerotel Singapore offers three room types, based on size. All guests are offered free Wi-Fi, a choice of pillows, and bathrooms with power showers and amenities. Some rooms also overlook the runway. Facilities include an outdoor swimming pool with poolside bar, a jacuzzi and fitness area.
The hotel will be accessible 24 hours a day with bookings for a minimum of six hours. Rates start at SG$55 (approx. US$39).
Following the opening of the Aerotel Singapore, Plaza Premium is planning to introduce the concept to Abu Dhabi and London Heathrow airports in future.
